LOS ANGELES, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Renowned photographer Wayne Schoenfeld returns to the big top in "Circus of the Heart," the completion of his celebrated "Icons/Iconoclasts" circus trilogy, the largest contemporary photographic series of the 1930's North American circus, February 26, at LA Circus, 6319 Eucalyptus Ave., Jarupa Valley, CA 92509.
At the LA Circus "back lot," where the TV series "Carnivale" and the film "Water for Elephants" were shot, Schoenfeld brings 150 actors, extras and professional circus performers together, including Tai the smartest Elephant in the world and World Figure Skating Champion and Olympian, Tai Babilonia.
Shot in Schoenfeld's "Tableaux Vivant" style, "Circus of the Heart" represents the third in his Icons/Iconoclasts series of circus photographic exhibits. Since 2007 the series has exhibited in U.S. and European museums and Festivals.

"Wayne Schoenfeld takes pictures rather than photographs. His carefully orchestrated images are like classic paintings…" said International Herald Tribune, The New York Times.
"He creates worlds inspired by fairgrounds and gypsy fairs … you'd think his pictures are 100 years old," said Stephane Lavoie, TOHU's INTERNATIONAL CITY OF CIRCUS ART Director.
